What To Do When I Am Injured and Cannot Play Frisbee With My Australian Shepherd?


For the past 2 years, I have played frisbee, practically every day, and it has caught up with me. I am not a doctor, so I cannot diagnose myself, but I know that overuse of my wrist has injured it and it needs a break. However, I have a problem.

My Australian Shepherd loves frisbee. I even keep frisbees in the house and car as a comfort blanket for her. My Aussie can live without walks, but not without frisbee. I am not sure on what to do.

I could run with her more, but the lack of frisbee will stress her out. She just loves the game too much and would probably spend the day crying. I have tried to play with my non-dominant hand, but it is very awkward.

I really do not know what to do. Running more would help some, but she would lose her mind if she cannot play frisbee for two weeks.

I do not have anyone else that would play with her. Also, she is not into balls and would irritate my wrist, as well.
